Lions Fan Warriors Get two Wishes fulfilled in Kansas City.

Week one Game one Detroit Lions @ Kansas City Chiefs

Two of our heroes Army Donavon Cope and Navy AJ Cope, didn’t even know they were going to be our guests until a couple days before. Both were surprised, one by their students and the other by his boss, and their cousin Zoeie, who they had not seen in 20 years.
Gold Star Dad Dan Robinson and his son Gold Star Brother of Fallen Navy Seal Heath Robinson also joined us for this very Special Night.
Why was it Special? Because since we have Chiefs season tickets, usually our guests are all Chiefs fans and usually they win. Tonight was different, as except for Donavon’s wife Patty, an Army Combat Medic herself who is Cowboy fan, all of our guests were Lions fans and the Lions pulled off an opening Night upset of the Chiefs as they raised the Championship Banner 21-20
What a GREAT start to the 2023 NFL SEASON!

He was joined by 13 family members including both his grandson Jeff and great granddaughter Erin ,who also serve. 4 generations of his family attended.

History at Army / Navy 2022

Not only was History made during the Army vs. Navy Game on December 10, 2022 but History graced the game as well. Warrior wishes was honored to host 103 guest at the game including 9 legends from WWII.  Anyone that was made aware of these 9 gentlemen that helped save the world wanted to meet them and show their respect. They even received a salute from an active duty Army Ranger Colonel.

I think everyone will agree that it was an great overtime even if the ending was not what some of us wanted. I overhead a young Army Cadet say on my out of the stadium, “There is nothing like going to a football game with almost 100,00 of your closest friends.” I think she pretty much nailed it.

Not enough praise can go out to the Philadelphia Fire Department, Police Department and Homeland Security for their respect, dignity and going above and beyond for our WWII veterans and the Philadelphia Eagles staff.

Thank you to all of our Volunteers that put in hundreds of hours of time, our sponsors for their generous donations, and most of all our Veterans because with their sacrifices we would be nothing.
